Why for?


i just dont like how half the articles on that site are Insider atricles...i rarely even go there anymore. paying $20 a year to read some sports article seems like robbery to me, but to each his own

I've had a ESPN the Mag subscription for 5 years now. Insider is a nice perk. I wouldn't get it if it didn't come with the magazine subscription.

yes espn sucks but you can make sick collages with the pictures..


I agree, and it seems like a lot more things on ESPN are becoming insider content lately. The mag is worthless, but all of the extras articles, info, and scouting reports make it worth it.

I bought the mag through a MADD telemarketing call and when I realized Insider came with it, I signed right up...but when my subscription ends you can count me out. I will miss the chats, but screw them for charging in the first place...

And in the end, that's really all that matter.

i have got insider and what my friend and i do is just split the cost and then have your comp remember the password. it could be split many ways i guess...

15 bucks for insider is not bad.

Yeah I let my buddy log in as me so he can read the latest Gammons articles.

ESPN pretty much has a stranglehold on things it seems. They're making people pay for their online content more and more and they have one of the highest prices for cable companies to carry them.
